New Releases on Netflix UK (1st December 2017)

Published on EST

December has come around again and it’ll soon be Christmas. It’s officially acceptable to play your Christmas music, wear your once-a-year jumper and start putting your Christmas tree up. To keep you entertained this week, 1st December 2017, we have 66 new titles to share with you that have been added to Netflix UK. This includes 44 new movies, twelve new documentaries and ten new TV series. As usual, we’re here to give you our top three recommendations out of the lot.

Her life may be a mess. She may not be the best person for the job. But she’s definitely determined to do everything she can to succeed. When Annie’s best friend announces she’s getting married, of course, her maid of honour was going to be the closest person to her. Our first pick is the 2011 film Bridesmaids, which follows Annie on her mission to make sure that her best friend’s wedding is perfect. Annie isn’t always someone people can rely on, but now she has no choice as her best friend is dependant on her. She needs Annie to keep everything together for the most important day of her life. This is a great film if you’re after something to make you smile, make you laugh and make you feel at ease about life.

Sometimes love makes you do crazy things. Sometimes love has you wrapped in a thick blanket. And sometimes you don’t know where love went wrong, so you seek advice. One woman is on a mission to gather all the information possible about love-sick women. She’s a rom-com screenwriter, and she’s out to get the best stories yet. It’s simple really… She provides the women with romantic advice, acting as a professional, but is actually using their heartbreak and misery to her advantage. This Netflix Original show called The Many Faces of Ito has one season available to watch on Netflix UK and is a strangely relatable Japanese series. Love is something we all have in common.

Our final pick of the night is another Netflix Original called Cuba and the CameramanThis documentary is so much more than you’d expect. It follows the Emmy-winning filmmaker Jon Alpert on his journey to Cuba and finding out about three Cuban families. It follows their strengths and weaknesses, their growth and set-backs over 45 years. This documentary is historical and is something special because you gradually learn more about these people, their bravery and their relationships.
